Coconut French Toast with Cardamom Maple Syrup from 52Teas. . . .

French Toast Tea. I’ve had a few. The ones I have tried I have adored. More than one of the French Toast flavored teas have been from 52 Teas whom I also adore. Today I want to tell you about Coconut French Toast with Cardamom Maple Syrup from 52 Teas. The name in itself is a thinker. Coconut French Toast with Cardamom Maple Syrup. My dyslexic brain converted the name to Coconut French Toast Cardamom with Maple Syrup. Either would have worked, I suppose. But I guess the Maple Syrup was Cardamom Flavored and not necessarily the French Toast. Regardless Read More

Coconut Carrot Cashew Assam from A Quarter To Tea. . . . .

When I saw this blend on A Quarter to Tea’s website and I told it to my significant other, he wrinkled his nose and said he didn’t think it would sound good. I, on the other hand, was intrigued. I have never seen cashews in a blend before and was curious as to how it would translate. So I bought a taster and it was the second tea I tried from my first order from them. The dry leaf smelled like carrot cake, sweet cashews, and coconut. It is very enticing, warm, and comforting. I steeped the whole sample in Read More

Coconut Cream Pie from 52Teas. . . . .

I met my now-husband almost half my life ago, when I was still in high school. (This is going somewhere, I promise). A fact about him is that he HATES COCONUT. Like, violently. It’s a “texture thing.” So, for the last 14 years, whenever we split dessert, it is not the coconut dessert. I have not had coconut in about a decade and a half. And oh gosh, guys, I didn’t realize I liked coconut so much. DID YOU KNOW? COCONUT IS VERY SWEET AND TASTY. When I got this coconut sample to try, I was super-hype to try it. Read More

Coconut Cream Pie from David’s Tea. . . . .

Full disclosure time, you guys. I’ve never eaten coconut cream pie. So before we dive into this tea review, I want you to know that I have zero frame of reference here and kiiiiiind of have no authority on the subject of which I am about to speak. Just FYI. That said, if I were to try and imagine what coconut cream pie tastes like (creamy, coconutty, smooth, light?) I think I’d pull the exact same adjectives for this tea. It was lighter than I was anticipating, with a creamy oolong base just kind of slipping into the background. The Read More

Golden West from Pacific Tea. . . . .

Golden West from Pacific Tea – I have to tell you – I wasn’t thinking I would like this fruity herbal offering – but I did! Golden West contains apple bits, rosehip peels, hibiscus, pineapple bits with rice flour, pear slices, coconut chips, ginger, natural flavour, and marigold petals. I wasn’t thrilled when I saw hibiscus but I set that aside based on all of the other ingredients in this blend of flavors. I figured it would be sweet but I was hoping it wasn’t going to be TOO sweet. Lucky for me – it’s sweetness was JUST RIGHT. This Read More
